Delhi SAD leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa on Saturday spoke about his predictions before the polling ended to Republic Media Network's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami. Sirsa took to Twitter around 5.20 PM, while the polling was still going on and posted his predictions of the polls. 

Speaking about it, the SAD leader said, "See my 2019 tweet as well. I had projected at 4.30 that day as well that Parvesh Verma will win by 350,000. Today, the way the voting patron was witnessed, it was very clear that people were voting for the BJP. I am not contesting the elections, neither is my party. But what was in front of us, it was very much visible."

He further added, "In my years of the political career, my prediction was not wrong, be it Punjab's election or Delhi elections or Lok Sabha elections or Delhi Vidhan Sabha Elections. Even in 2017, when I had won the elections, even then I had said that AAP will lose."
